, lady lynn is chief executive of the holding company, el rothschild, a democratic strategist and douglas is president of the american action forum and former director of the congressional budget office. i guess that means you know how to crunch numbers. lot of number crunching going on last night. but in the end, maybe you didn't really need to crunch them so much, douglas, because obama won pretty easily. >> it is one of the remarkable things that the end, the race looked like it looked a year ago, despite all the campaigning and money spent, that the polls going in were reflective of what came out. the only thing that happened was that for a month in between, there were hopes raised on the republican side because the momentum that appeared to gather hyped mitt romney. in the end, i think the president gets credit for a tremendous tactical victory. this was really a ground game in turning his voters out to the polls. it doesn't look like an whoever whelming governing mandate. >> gretchen: how does a republican, many people are going to ask -- lose against a man who has high gas prices,

. for a lot of people who follow politics, the fifth biggest county is el paso county, home to colorado springs. that is typically viewed as a republican stronghold. it is, but is also a big vote a bank for democrats. increasingly we have seen the ski areas that have started to trended democrat. the southwest corner of the state are two other ski resort communities that tented a democrat. host: a lot of focus on early voting in this contest. does colorado have it? what is it looking like? guest: we do, we have mailed ballots and early voting. we have already had more people vote overseas this year than all of 2008. like i said, we had 800,000 ballots returned. the republicans had a 20,000 ballot advantage. nobody knows how the unaffiliated voters are breaking. about 2 million people voted early are absentee and enter the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to 2.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind colorado has 2.8 million active voters, more when you look at inactive voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado, maybe a little more prior to novembe
